Recent Portland reviews
"We had a fine week in Portland, and our apartment was key. Comfortable, well-equipped, clean, and it could not be in a better location. Two blocks from all the activities and restaurants on 23rd, and an easy stroll to the streetcar or bus. Shopping was also nearby. Neighborhood is special, and if you enjoy great food and wonderful old houses, this is a good place to call home."Guest: Doug Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 6, 2014View listing
"We lived in this amazing condo for eight months. It more than met our expectations. Gorgeous views of the river and downtown Portland. The streetcar is just steps away. The south waterfront is a very vibrant area. We loved walking along the river and enjoying the different restaurants. The dry cleaners within feet of the building entrance are the best. There is a small market in the same block. The owner of the condo is wonderful. She was always available if we had a question or problem. The concierge very attentive. It is a wonderful place to stay. Treat yourself to the "best place in Portland"."Guest: Susan Date of Stay: October 2013 Review Submitted: June 18, 2014View listing
"Fabulous location with plenty to do within walking distance. We also made great use of public transit system, with a bus stop just a few blocks away. The neighborhood is quiet and felt safe to walk in the evenings along with many other people. Nearby park was well enjoyed by families. Bring your bicycle because Portland is uber-bike friendly. The home is wonderfully retro and comfy. Perfect for the 2 of us. Very conscientiously stocked with the regularly used spices, herbs, papergoods, cleaning and laundry supplies, plus the owners provided coffee, cream, and a great bottle of wine as a welcome gift. Christie and her team were so attentive and helpful, yet not obtrusive. We came to Portland to escape summer heat and mother nature treated us with the warmest summer in recorded history. Haha! Many places including this home don't have a/c. With the 3 provided box fans we managed along. Water pressure in this holder home isn't fierce so showers took a bit longer to rinse off. Portland is an amazing city and living in this home opened it up perfectly. If you want to experience the city, live in it, don't commute in. On the other hand, we did venture out to the Columbia River Gorge, Willamette valley, and to the coast. Living at this centralized location made it easy. All in all, a great location and comfy home. Owners are wonderful to work with!"Guest: Kathryn . Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: September 11, 2014View listing
"This is a great set up, nicely finished while keeping old feel. Management was friendly and helpful Good location with bus and street car close. We are from very small town in quiet neighbourhood, this is located right beside busy (for us) city artery. Traffic noise all night was enough to look else where when we return to amazing and friendly city. Most guests might find it very quiet compared to home. Owner could change 1 window in bedroom to triple glaze to cut a lot of noise."Guest: Tim F. Date of Stay: November 2013 Review Submitted: December 6, 2013View listing
